The present invention relates to friction mechanism.

Especially, the present invention relates to be used for friction mechanism that two axles are linked together.In a preferred embodiment, the present invention is applied on variable position two axles are connected to each other.

Background technique

Through whole specification, will be referred to golf push rod and describe the present invention.Yet, should be appreciated that the principle of the invention can be applied in other and relate to the aspect of coupling shaft relative to each other, golf push rod is a preferred embodiment of the present invention.

For example, the patent No. is that 2,076,821 Canadian Patent relates to the umbrella axle, and the axle that it uses spring to settle to be relative to each other connection makes and spool can effectively stretch.Yet this is not a solid or fixing joint, uses ratchet to make the axle location because this depends at spring end, does not have strong frictional engagement between them.

Golf is a welcome amusement, and its target is that golf ball is entered in the hole on the lawn.Usually use special golf club (being called push rod) to finish above-mentioned action.

This normally has most the part of skill in the golf sports, and an axiom is exactly " it is elegant kicking off, and pushing the ball is money ".It given prominence in this Chinese idiom is a pushball, has determined the success in the golf.

Push rod has various ways, is commonly referred to short push rod, middle push rod (abdomen formula push rod) or long push rod.When each dissimilar push rod carried out different uses, a total shortcoming was according to linksman's height, to need the push rod of different length.

Had many trials to solve this problem, following patent is wherein representative.

The U. S. Patent 5,733,203 of Middleton has illustrated a kind of telescopic push rod with two axles, comes fastener shaft by " stop screw ".

The U. S. Patent 5,649,870 of Harrison has illustrated a kind of telescopic axle layout, and wherein simple friction is fastened on two telescopic diminished shafts on the semi-fixed location.

The U. S. Patent 4,674,747 of Mazzocco discloses a kind of golf clubs, has the axle of adjustable length, extend fully between the position open and to bounce back flexible.This golf clubs has a plurality of concentric flexible interlocking tubular portions, and it forms friction lock on extended position fully the time between tubular portion.There is a kind of commercial club to utilize this principle.( http://www.allinoneglofclub.com)。

The U. S. Patent 5,584,769 of Sundin has illustrated a kind of axle, and it can have two or more flexible adjustable or flexible parts to constitute, and is adjusted to different length to allow it, is used for the linksman of individual difference.Yet Sundin does not point out two axles are how to be fastened on the appropriate location.

The U. S. Patent 5,569,096 of Lee has illustrated " axle is inserted in the handle, tightens lock screw and external screw-thread on the elastic ring, up to the elastic ring extrusion axis, thereby prevents that axle from sliding---effectively shaft lock is fixed on the length that needs ".

Though all above-mentioned patented inventions all allow to regulate technically, neither one is simultaneously variable on length, can satisfy the invention of rules of golf again.

The rule of golf does not allow arbitrarily club to be regulated, and up in May, 2002, the push rod of adjustable-length also is not that United States Golf Association is legal.

United States Golf Association is careful for golf clubs or the undesigned adjusting of push rod very much, and to the general utility tool of needs such as screw-driver or use coin or be careful very much without the undesigned adjusting of any mechanism of instrument.

Regulation in force comprises following content about the qualification of can regulate putter component:

" appendix II.1b regulation:

Timber and iron cannot be used to design other customized parameter factors of regulating except that weight.Push rod weight can be designed as adjustable, in addition also allows the design-adjustable of other form.All can regulate methods that regulation in force allows need satisfy:

I. this adjusting can not reach easily;

Ii. all adjusting parts firmly assemble, one take turns can not have in the match parts loose and,

Iii. all regulation structures are wanted legal regulation.

The match characteristic that deliberately changes club in the regulation race will be subjected to cancelling the punishment (regular 4-2a) of qualification for participating in competition, be equally applicable to comprise all clubs of push rod.

(i) general provisions

In order to keep the integrity of regular 4-2 (changing the match characteristic), this rule is clearly stipulated can not too random regulating in the regulation race for the sportsman.This regulation is interpreted as regulating must use special instrument, for example L shaped inner hexagon spanner or Philips screwdriver.Can not be only with finger or the linksman is with oneself portable regulates such as coin, pitch mark instrument etc.

Above-mentioned restriction has been included in the rule, is necessary adjusting and the adjusting of protecting him not to be not intended to or to have a mind to the institute that encourages the sportsman just to carry out before service its club in race

Appendix II.1a regulation:

(iii) all parts must be fixed

This regulation is interpreted as, and any parts of golf clubs do not allow to be designed to removable, do not encourage this design yet.Therefore, if any parts of club are combined with chalk, ball, Lubricants, stretch silk, pulley, control fork or can be considered to any amount of other characteristic of " moving member ", all will violate this rule.

The present inventor attempts to solve these problems by the patent among the PCT application PCT/NZ02/00123.

The present invention is first invention about the adjustable in length push rod of once being admitted by United States Golf Association.

The existing problem of previous friction mechanism is, the outer volume of mechanism is excessive, and outside the projecting shaft, hindered to be mounted (or connection) holding device in mechanism.

The objective of the invention is to address the above problem or provide to the public at least the selection of usefulness.

Summary of the invention

One object of the present invention is to address the above problem, or offers useful selection of the public at least.

From by only being that other aspects and advantages of the present invention will be clearly the definite explanation that provides of example.

One aspect of the present invention provides a kind of adjustable mechanism, comprises at least two axles, and one of them is a hollow,

It is characterized in that this mechanism comprises the spring that is connected on first,

The outside dimension of this spring and second internal diameter size is suitable,

In case the spring power of being configured such that is applied on the spring, its external diameter will be less than second internal diameter, and

When power no longer was applied on the spring, spring promptly was returned to its original outer diameter, to match with second internal diameter.

The present invention provides a kind of method that two axles are combined on the other hand, and one of them is a hollow,

It is characterized in that, may further comprise the steps

A) guarantee that spring is connected to an end of first, and

B) the spring joining tool is inserted in second, and

C) spring is engaged with the spring joining tool, and

D) utilize the spring joining tool to apply power to spring, reducing the external diameter of described spring, and

E) slide second, wherein, the spring joining tool pass undergauge spring, so that diaxon is settled toward each other, and

F) release spring joining tool from the spring, its initial diameter so that spring rebounds, thus provide frictional fit by being adjacent on second internal surface.

In certain embodiments, final step can be that the spring that engages is separated again.Yet this is step not necessarily.

In the term that whole specification is used, " axle " should be regarded as the meaning of inwall.Material around inwall is not considered.

Therefore it should be understood that term " axle " can comprise the hole of passing sheet material or plate/entablature.In this case, this hole is used for axle, and comprises the necessary internal diameter of permission the invention process.

In a preferred embodiment, axle is the material of hollow on the length, such as golf grip.

According to other aspects of the invention, provide a kind of external member, it comprises

At least two axles, one of them is a part hollow,

One spring, its size and profile are made as to be with the internal diameter of at least one and closely cooperate, and

One spring joining tool can combined spring, and applies power to spring.

With reference to this specification, the present invention can be applicable to golf push rod.

Application of the present invention though the present invention is particularly suitable for golf clubs, also can be applied to other field considerably beyond this narrow scope yet for purposes of the invention.These fields can comprise support, bicycle seat bar, furniture, walking cane, tent pole, machine tools fixture/chuck, ski pole and other consumer products in ladder, scaffold, the building industry.

Though the present invention is described as two axles are linked together, should be appreciated that the present invention also can be used for a plurality of axles or other device are linked together, two axles are only just as simple embodiment of the present invention.

Wherein, the present invention is used for golf clubs (and preferably push rod), and the width of positive apparent time axle and type and traditional golf clubs are similar.

Below make an explanation with golf push rod.

Should be understood that, do not resemble other golf clubs, having the bat successfully factor of (technology of not considering the linksman) of decision most is the length of push rod and head thereof, rather than spool elasticity and other material behavior.

This is because golf push rod is used for from linksman's shoulder with little distance batting.This club with other is opposite.The head of other club is all lifted high top to shoulder, and the material behavior of their motion and axle itself combines, and the impact required to golf ball is provided.

In certain embodiments of the present invention, axle can crack, thereby but still want to resist firmly external springs power---guarantee to obtain frictional fit.

The term of this specification " anchoring " comprises that spring independently makes the embodiment who is connected to subsequently on the axle, comprise equally spring with axle embodiment integrally formed or that disconnect with axle.

In one embodiment of the invention, spring directly is suspended on the end of an axle.But this should not regard restrictive form as, because spring can be independent parts, can connect an axle or all be connected with two axles in location action.

The another kind of selection is that spring can be integrally formed with axle, perhaps forms with axle to disconnect.

If spring is to be connected to axle, this can have multiple mode to connect so.

In one embodiment, spring can be by welding, or bonding by tackiness agent, or joins in the axle or on the housing bore, be determined on a case-by-case basis by the frictional engagement that twine to generate.

The term " spring " that runs through this specification can be helical spring commonly used jointing type or integral type, also can be jointing type or integral type, to play the parts of spring action by certain mode that changes length and outside dimensions.

Be rendered as in a preferred embodiment, an end of spring is wound in the axle and for good and all is fastened on its inside.Except bonding or welding, can also provide a kind of packing material to keep the joint of spring and between centers, perhaps by enough frictional fit location that spring is firm between spring external diameter and the axle internal diameter.

See that in one embodiment two axles internal diameter and external diameter relative to each other equate substantially, make push rod shaft in case have the level and smooth relatively outside after the assembling, only manifest the very little sign of forming by two or more axial lengths.

In other embodiments, second internal diameter can be greater than first external diameter.This allows second to pass through spring and first.This certain embodiments is suitable for the expanding-contracting action of axle at length direction most.

In another embodiment, purpose of the present invention might not be to make axle form different length when associating, and only provide a kind of mode that can easily assemble or remove golf push rod, in this embodiment, the external diameter of axle each other can be basic identical, and when axle sleeve was contained on the spring, the end of axle can be an adjacency.

Can see the external diameter of spring and its insertion and to be assemblied in the internal diameter of axle wherein close.Spring can be regarded as in term " similar diameter " can reduce its diameter in order to be inserted in the axle.And, form frictional fit in case behind the axle location, the natural outside dimension of spring will make it abut against axle.Concerning spring, do not produce distortion substantially.

Spring can be made into virtually any size and shape, so long as its external diameter can dwindle under the effect of power, to insert in the axle.And after power discharged, promptly expanding to get back to the inboard suitable dimension that is complementary of axle got final product.

Can dwindle the external diameter of spring in several ways.

In one embodiment, can make spring stretch by the end of spring joining tool pulling spring, the external diameter of spring reduces simultaneously.

And can see that in a preferred embodiment can apply to spring and reverse or torsion action, it is tighter to make that spring twines, its external diameter reduces simultaneously.

In certain embodiments of the present invention, the external diameter of the one or both ends of spring is littler than the external diameter at spring middle part.This can be used to spring progressively guided, and to enter axle inboard, make spring partly be directed in the axle than major diameter before, spring can be compacted in axle.

In certain embodiments of the present invention, can provide a kind of instrument, it can apply power to spring, thereby makes the external diameter of spring reduce.

In a preferred embodiment, this instrument comprises the handle that is connected on the major axis, and has the spring engaging mechanism at its end.

Preferably, the shape and size of handle for tool make it be easy to grasp and be easy to axle to instrument to apply and reverse or pull action.

Preferably, the length of the axle of band instrument is enough to make that the spring engaging mechanism can pass an end of connected push rod shaft, and stretches out at the other end, and the user still can utilize the handle of joining tool to reverse.

The spring bonding apparatus of tool end can have various ways.In one embodiment of the invention, the spring bonding apparatus only is a recess on the shaft end of instrument.The best shape and size of this recess are that it can be enclosed near the spring in its end, and guarantee that in twist process near the spring its end does not drop.

In certain embodiments of the present invention, recess is the keyhole form, before spring remains in the bigger a little groove, needs some power to promote this recess and crosses spring.

Thereby can see that in one embodiment of the invention, golf push rod can assemble as follows.

At first, the user passes the shaft length (such as pusher grip) of push rod with the spring joining tool, makes that the spring engaging mechanism on the tool end begins to extend therefrom.Then, the user places another and has from the axle (such as the push rod head) of stretched spring wherein.Then this axle is roughly alignd with first handle shaft.

Then, the end the spring engagement recesses pushed away push rod head shaft upper spring rotates recess with respect to this end then.This rotation or reverse and make the external diameter of spring reduce is especially if under the situation of second pulling spring joining tool.

The reducing of spring external diameter makes handle shaft to cross spring joining tool and spring itself to lower slider.Then, the user can select handle shaft and spring relativeness between the two to locate, and then the spring joining tool is separated from spring, and this makes spring can be returned to its original outer diameter.The spring that is placed in the handle shaft obtains firm frictional fit by bearing against on the internal diameter of handle shaft.
